Following the trend pointed out by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the tobacco sector showed a slight decline in shipments compared to the previous year. Still, the product accounted for 1.15% of total Brazilian exports, which in 2016 reached US $ 185.235 billion. For tobacco, throughout Brazil were 483,000 tons and US $ 2.12 billion exported. The results keep the country as the world’s largest tobacco exporter since 1993.

Mas é na Região Sul que se concentra mais de 99% destes embarques. Em comparação com 2015, a Região Sul exportou -2,78% em dólares e -6,45% em volume, com um acumulado no ano de US$ 2,09 bilhões e 481 mil toneladas. Segundo o presidente do Sindicato Interestadual da Indústria do Tabaco (SindiTabaco), Iro Schünke, o resultado era esperado. “O montante embarcado está dentro do previsto pela PWC, que apontou tendência de queda de -6% a -10% em 2016, tanto em dólares quanto em volume”, avalia.

Já entre os principais países importadores, Bélgica, China e Estados Unidos lideram o ranking, com incremento de 15%, 6% e 10%, respectivamente, no montante embarcado. Ao todo, 90 países compraram o produto brasileiro no último ano.
